Life Skills, grades 3-5, Room #138

Year at a Glance:

I will be teaching from the online learning program called Unique. This curriculum helps differentiate grade level TEKS for each students individual learning level. This is done through hands-on learning and supported with visual and audio accommodations for each student.

Classroom rules/procedures/expectations:

We understand that each student has various needs and challenges. However, we do not plan on treating our students any different than any other class when it comes to behaviors. Students are expected to be on time and attend school whenever possible. Talking down or picking on other students will not be tolerated. Students who infringe on classroom expectations will be sent to the calming station or have a loss of privilege.
